The Regent Diamond Knight timepiece by Backes & Strauss is a monochrome masterpiece lit with the fire and brilliance of 141 diamonds of the finest quality, weighing 5.62carats. Although strong and dark, the creative process is delicate and complicated, applying the PVD coating to steel to ensure the Knight’s strength, the light of white diamonds are then hand set into the PVD steel casing.
The Regent Collection draws on the architecture of John Nash who was commissioned by the Prince Regent in 1811 to develop a huge swathe of London, then known as Marylebone Park. The classical proportions of Nash’s work – Regent Street, Regents Park & St James’s Park – can be seen in the sweeping curves and bold symmetry of the Regent Collection.
